Crockpot Roasted VegetablesBy Sarah YooCrockpots are wonderful. I used to think they were only good for chills and roasts, but roasted veggies? Beautiful revelation.Crockpot Caramelized OnionsBy Sarah YooCaramelized onions are an incredible addition to…pretty much everything. Stir them into mashed potatoes or wilted greens, sprinkle them on top of a pizza, or use them in one of our staff's favorite recipes: Mujaddara (Lebanese Lentils).2-Ingredient Crockpot ApplesauceBy Sarah YooContaining no refined or added sugars, this crockpot recipe is about as "whole foods" as it gets. Plus it's about as "hands off" and easy as it gets too.Frozen Banana PopsBy Sarah YooBananas have an intrinsic sweetness, creaminess, and binding quality that makes it a perfect medium for a healthy dessert. This is a real crowd pleaser—one you can't really go wrong with—so get a little creative with toppings!Vegan SouffléBy Desiree KröperI enjoy easy, tasty recipes, but sometimes it's fun to make something extra special. Hence, when I learned you can make "egg white" foam using garbanzo juice, I was anxious to see if a vegan soufflé was possible. And voilà, it worked and has become one of my favorite recipes!Oil-Free GranolaBy Life and Health NetworkAlthough granola has a healthy image, many granolas are actually full of sugar and oil. This granola is perfect for individuals on low-fat diets, it contains no added fats and still tastes great (thanks to the coconut and almond butter). You can also substitute or add in you favorite nuts or dried fruits to suit your taste.Aquafaba MayonnaiseBy Grace JauwenaThis is the perfect light mayo for all your mayo needs! It’s much healthier than real mayo but doesn't lack in texture and flavor. The key to making plant-based mayo is the aquafaba liquid. The liquid comes from a can of cooked chickpeas or, alternatively, the leftover water from cooking your own chickpeas. This is a fun recipe to make, fast and easy, and a wonderful alternative to mayo with eggs. No one will know that you didn’t use eggs in this recipe… that is of course unless you tell them!Vegan Melted CheeseBy María HummelOne of the characteristics that people miss most about cheese when they stop using it is its texture when it melts. This version of vegetarian cheese has a texture very similar to melted cheese, and therefore is excellent for use in recipes such as Salvadoran pupusas or any other recipe that requires melted cheese.Sofrito BoricuaBy María HummelThe sofrito is one of the most important ingredients of Puerto Rican food, since it is used to make almost all the most important dishes. The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it is very simple, healthy, and also easy to prepare. It can be used to flavor many stews and dishes, including soups and rice.
